    Righty ho - I have celeriac seeds!
    I am unsure about the lettuce though - they flowered and then when I checked a few of the now dead heads, there seems to be no seeds I can see. Is there a special knack with lettuce seed?
    On the positive side, my fennel is also flowering (Spiro) now!!

    Yes, sometimes if the fluffy heads get wet [and round here, they did] there can be no seeds as they go mouldy before they go hard. Best time to get them is before the fluff blows away.

    Ok, I've got tomatillos, a borlotti bean (which is almost dry), and tomato 'Christal's Plum.'

    Right. Another bump for this.

    Bags starting to bulk up, with only a few of us having put ours in.

    Anyone else still planning to send seeds in?
